    Linked and highlighted are excerpts from a recent speech by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.

    It is a four page speech with lots of interesting thoughts on higher education and the military.

    A good opener:

    Specifically regarding ROTC and foreign language acquisition:

    ^^^financial incentives are a good idea. I wonder what the obligation might be.


    Gates was speaking to the American Association of Universities and also addressed how the opposition to military service obliquely uses ROTC as a tool:



    There is much more in the speech worth reading - China, Iraq, veterans returning to college, etc.
